Family Friendly Summer @ PHM

Thinking of fun things to do with the family this summer?  Visit the People’s History Museum open every day, 10.00am – 5.00pm and enjoy our exciting Family Friendly programme of events and activites for the summer holidays (details below).  There’s also hands-on stuff in every gallery and children aged 3-6 can borrow a Busy Bee explorer pack full of fun items to help them discover the museum.  Kids can also become a ‘Guardian of the Museum’ by taking part in our CBBC Relic Trail.  Plus you can picnic in in the Engine Hall.
